F1 star Max Verstappen isn’t going to play ball with FIA punishment


Anyone following Formula 1 over the past two seasons has come to expect a bit of fire from Max Verstappen, but his latest dummy spit is really something else.

An outburst at Force India star Esteban Ocon, who ruined his chance at victory in Brazil by colliding with him late in the race, landed the 21-year-old in some serious hot water.

Fuming at coming second, Verstappen confronted the 22-year-old and shoved him on camera before launching a scathing attack on the Frenchman in the post-race press conference.

He later claimed Ocon — who recently became a reserve driver for Mercedes — wouldn’t have acted so recklessly if he found himself wheel to wheel with championship winner Lewis Hamilton.

Verstappen was handed two days of public service for the FIA as punishment for his sour blow-up in Brazil, but the Dutchman says he won’t be pleased if his job isn’t “suitable”.
